As we have just waved our Dutch Saint Nicholas goodbye and are gearing up for the school break, we are ready for the festive holiday. On paper….because with the sun still out and our flip flops still on, Christmas still feels far away.

As we will be singing our carols under a tree elsewhere, we want to keep our decorations really simple this year. Yet we just can not let this cozy time pass us by unseen. So focus on green, back to the basic with a touch a lights

On Pinterest we came across a lot of beautiful and inspiring holiday decorations that we would like to share with you. It might get you (and us) into the right mood.

You might have seen it in some of our posts before as the Live Loud boys love to use them. Rain or (too much) shine, home or holiday, regular Tuesday or special celebration, they are great entertainment for the whole family.
Are you wondering what we are going on about?
We are raving about OMY, the clever coloring products designed by two French ladies and brought to the Middle East by two others. And for the first time in our career, we feel so passionate about a brand that we have taken the honors to become their brand ambassador to help build the brand in the region.

Even though OMY is not new to us you will see a lot more of it in our home because the OMY collection is not only for kids. They have a very broad range of innovative items that go from coloring to party supplies. These smart solutions really bring a personal touch into your home. And that is exactly what we are planning to do the coming months. Besides it being great gifts for this festive season, they are great for on the go. We can definitely kill some air-hours with something a bit more creative then just a TV screen.

Join us on this journey to get a bit more creative together with the kids. It might just be on your new year resolutions list already. Decorating becomes a game, a moment where friends and family can create and share together. It does not get better then that!

hb0006-2Styling a photo shoot is something we love to do. Styling a photo shoot with babies was a first for us. Yet when the girls behind the new baby leggings brand Hotbunz asked us to take care of the styling, we could not resist as we share a love for simple and  subtle style.

Hotbunz is a new brand on the block that designs baby pants that are comfortable above all. The organic cotton pants are soft for baby tummies and don’t restrain their little legs. And not less important, they come in lots of mouthwatering color combinations.
